ASMT: Introducing the team

If you're a regular reader of this blog or you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you would be aware by now that this year I am contributing to Australia's Sweetest Morning Tea (ASMT). Yippee!

ASMT is brought to us by four big forces being The Cupcake Lady, Blissfully Sweet, Darling Details and Pretty & Print. 2013 was the first year, and the results were fantastic. If you missed ASMT 2013, the magazine is still available for view online here. Definitely take a look if you're interested in cakes, desserts, parties or just pretty pictures. I look at my hard copy of the magazine all the time - it's just so beautiful!

So what is ASMT? It is an E-vent that showcases the talents of Australia, which will be taking place this year on Thursday 22nd of May. The entire E-vent will be published online via Australia's Sweetest Morning Tea Blog and Facebook page, as well as on each contributors page. Cakes, cupcakes, cookies, dessert tables - all sorts of beautiful events photographed and published online and in a magazine, raising awareness and funds for cancer research.

This is a topic that is very close to my heart after watching my mothers battle with cancer (a battle which she was lucky enough to win, thankfully), so I am thrilled to be involved this year.

I assembled an amazing team to work with me on this project and I am so happy to introduce them to you. Due to me leaving so soon, we didn't have a lot of time to pull together our ideas and yet these two wonderful women have worked so hard to make this happen. Our photo shoot took place yesterday and I am so proud of what we have created as a team within such a small time frame.

In fact, I got a little too excited...


But back to the serious stuff!

Firstly, the always lovely and exceptionally talented Kate from Vanilla Rose Cakery. I don't think I've ever met anyone as kind and selfless as this lovely lady, plus her caking skills are incredible. We met via the online cake scene on Facebook, and then later in person in a cake class when I discovered that she is just about the funniest person ever. She is so generous with her knowledge and always willing to lend a hand. Take a look at her Facebook page for some beautiful cakes! Give her a 'like' - she deserves it!

Secondly, probably the coolest person I have ever met: Natalia from Natalia Chippillo Photography. Not only is she a wonderful photographer, Natalia even flew in from Melbourne just for our photo shoot. That's what I call dedication! She is also the person who inspired my monthly videos. She's just an all round creative genius. While Kate and I flailed around with our never ending ideas for cakes and desserts, Natalia stepped up and became our creative director, stylist, and photographer all in one! Phew! Natalia's photography work can be seen on her Facebook page - make sure you give her a 'like' too, especially if styled shoots and fashion are of interest to you.

So, our photo shoot has wrapped up and now Natalia is hard at work editing away preparing for our submission. I can't tell you much more at this stage as everything is under wraps until the 22nd of May but make sure you at the very least like one of our Facebook pages, Sugar Push, Vanilla Rose Cakery or Natalia Chippillo Photography - and the ASMT Facebook page as well so that you can see all the beautiful creations on the day!

This is an E-vent not to be missed!
